Reader comment on item: The Muslim Claim to Jerusalem
in response to reader comment: A Muslim Scholar's response

Oh I forgot Muslims tell us that the Qur'an is an eloquent text and I will let you judge and this is Q17:1 again

سبحان الذي اسرى بعباده ليلا من المسجد الحرام الى المسجد الاقصا

These cannot be the words of Allah after all it says glory to he who (Allah)

Why would Allah says that and these must be the words of either Muhammad as Muslims would believe or they are the words of Moses

So much for the claim that the Qur'an is the word of Allah

الذي باركنا حوله لنريه من اياتنا

Then the speaker here changes and it reads that we (Allah) blessed and because Moses or even Muhammad do not bless it is Allah that does the blessing then these must be the words of Allah

Tsk...tsk...tsk... if you or I our dear Khaled write this way by sudden change is subject and object we will flunk in writing class 101

انه هو السميع البصي

Now this one says he Allah) is he who sees and hears which means that the speaker not is not Allah but Moses

You think that you and I can do lunch with him and get him to take a class in writing 101 oh do not panic I will do the talking after all your Allah does not speak Urdu

So much for the eloquent Qur'an
